The temp is 67F, but with a cool N/W wind that is making it feel cooler.
Apparently, we’re under a La Nina influence – that other Spanish brat that makes it feel cooler. Hmm … Wouldn’t you just know it. Here I am in the south looking for heat, it cost me a fortune to get here, and the forecast is for cooler than normal, and the Loonie is $0.83 cents.
I haven’t received the galley proofs for Coming of Age, but I didn’t really expect them until the 15th. My plan is to have it on the shelves for the Christmas market. There is a Christmas scene in it, but not a traditional one; not like the Irish Christmas in Two Irish Lads.
In the meantime, I’m making progress with COA: Part Two.
Georgia has over 9,000,000 people, and is noted for peanuts, corn, and soybeans across middle and south. The state is the number one producer of pecans in the world. Gainesville in the northeast touts itself as the Poultry Capital of the World, and Georgia is in the top five blueberry producers in the United States. Oddly, peaches – for which it is famous – is not its major crop.
The Georgia pines, “Lodgepole,” I think, grow very high (50′ is not uncommon) but they are only about a foot in diameter. There is a whole grove of them growing across from the hotel. Very pretty and very elegant.
Thanksgiving is coming. I get to celebrate two each year. However, since the steakhouse generally closes for that day, my Thanksgiving dinner will be a burger at the Waffle House.
More next time. 🙂
